Ted Turner Launches New Clean Energy Business Venture

A new business venture to provide clean power solutions has been announced by Ted Turner, who will partner with Dome-Tech Solar, of Branchburg, New Jersey, to create DT Solar, a Turner renewable energy company.

Tom Kuster, DT Solar’s CEO, said, “We look forward to working with [Turner] to bring clean and renewable energy solutions to a broad spectrum of energy users in the U.S. as well as globally.” DT Solar, which plans for immediate expansion into several U.S. markets, has recently launched a $3 billion, ten-year program to increase the use of solar power in California. The new company will focus on providing onsite solar electric power systems for commercial and industrial clients, as well as developing larger, utility-scale solar power plants in the southwestern U.S. “Our future depends on changing the way we use energy,” said Turner, American media mogul and philanthropist who founded the cable television network, CNN. “We’ve got to move away from fossil fuels and develop long-term energy solutions that work. Using clean energy technologies, such as solar power, is the right thing to do, and it represents a tremendous business opportunity.” A few of Turner’s other affiliations include being chairman of the United Nations Foundation, the Turner Foundation, and is co-chairman of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) with former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn.
